Gout and Hep C
Hey Guys,
     Does anyone know if hep c treatment can trigger "gout"? Even since I finished tx I've had this severe burning sensation in my knees when I get up or squat down. I was hoping it would get better with time but this one is now getting better?

Gout is a renal condition,usually marked by extreme pain in the toes.Caused by excess uric acid.
Your symptoms could be anything-no need to assume Hep C or treatment related.
One for the doctor rather than the forum at this stage maybe.A Full Blood Count will point him in the direction of gout if it is the culprit!

What is the connection between gout and incevik? Is there a dangerous side effect. My husband just started incevik but has a history of gout for which he takes daily allopurinol.

"What should I tell my healthcare provider before taking INCIVEK?
Tell your healthcare provider if you:

    have certain blood problems such as low red blood cell count (anemia)
    have liver problems other than hepatitis C infection
    have hepatitis B, HIV infection, or any problems with your immune system
    have a history of gout or high uric acid levels in your blood
    have had an organ transplant
    plan to have surgery
    have any other medical condition
    are breastfeeding
